Former Union Bookkeeper In California Sentenced For Embezzling $100+K

Rosa Della Porta, 45, of Highland Park, California, was sentenced yesterday to 21 months in prison for embezzling some $108,000 from the International Longshore and Warehouse Union, Local 26 (ILWU), where she had been employed as a bookkeeper. According to prosecutors, Porta handled incoming monies for union dues, but kept a portion of the cash that was meant to be deposited for the union. Porta's scheme lasted from January 2003 until June 2006. She was fired in November 2006 and ultimately arrested in August 2008. Porta plead guilty last year to one count of embezzlement.
